Lachrimae Consort:  The Music of Caludon Castle

The popular Lachrimae Consort returns with a fascinating programme about the life and music of the noble Berkeley family at Caludon Castle, near Coventry, during the reign of Elizabeth I.  The performance includes amazing stories written by the House Steward at the time, John Smyth.

The musicians of The Lachrimae Consort are all expert in playing instruments of the time, including treble viol, bass viol, recorder, bandora, cittern and lute. The Queen loved this special combination of instruments and there are three surviving accounts of her hearing them during progresses, and even asking for an encore!

The Leicester Mercury said “The six musicians of The Lachrimae Consort play with impressive unanimity and produce a pleasingly mellifluous sound. This Midlands based group invariably offers attractive, entertaining and well-researched programmes”.

The narrator is John Seeley.
